When the hanged man was taken down from the gallows his eyes were still unbroken. The executioner hastened to close them, but the bystanders had noticed and lowered their own eyes in shame.

The gallows, however, for this one minute, considered itself a tree, and as nobody had looked up we cannot be sure that it was not.

Paul Celan
